    Step 1. Go to Youtube
    Step 2. Type in whoopie slings
    Step 3. Take your pick

    There are also some threads here in the DIY forum with instructions.

    When I saw the header for this thread, all I saw was "how do you make whoopie..." First thing I thought of was the old Newlywed Game Show on TV. Man I'm getting old.

    Also if you go in the Suspension Systems Forum you'll find 2 helpful stickies: Pictoral for the Locked Brummel and Whoopie Sling Suspension, which includes the oh-so-important taper. Good luck.

    I at first couldn't believe someone actually had to ask how to make a whoopie sling, but then I realized that less than a year ago I had never heard of one, and when I did I had no idea how it worked much less how to make one. Today I do take them for granted, but we have a wonderful group of new people coming aboard daily who are still learning this "new language" with all of its "how to's", so thanks to all who help to make this learning process fun and enjoyable.

    Thank you Kiwi for asking the question for all us newbies (just so one of us doesn't have to ask all the 'I'm new, how do I' questions.

    And thanks to Strawhat for linking us to one of the easiest to follow instructional videos I've seen.

    Another one that has to be bookmarked so I can find it when the time and materials come together!!

    Can we get a Dejoha illustration? The absolute best, if you can't understand something after looking at a Dejoha, you just are not going to ever get it!
